In the (US) state I'm from, the aoc is 14 if you're both under 21, and at 17 you can do whatever. "Aging up" being a *requirement* is very odd to me for this reason. Plus, I caught on finally that aoc is being conflated with "age of majority," and these are two different concepts. Legal minors (14-17) can and do date and sleep with legal adults (18-20) in my home state. It's strange to see people claiming the US aoc is 18, because it is not. Like...you can't just make up a law, guys.
